(WICHITA, Kan.) — The field was harvested by the friends and family members of a man named Mike Weber. He died of cancer this past winter, and they decided to harvest it as a way of saying thank you.
"He always took everybody else's feelings and thoughts before his own," said his brother Jerry.
"He was an awesome person, he died way too young we lost him just way too young because there was a lot he could still give back to the community," said his sister Jane Duvall
Mike's friends say he would be the first to organize similar cuts for friends who experienced a loss, and would help without having to be asked twice.
"He never said no to anyone, he was there to help anyone that he could," said Jane.Friends and family harvest wheat for a farmer who died of cancer
